Posted by Greg Hambrick on Fri, Sep 18, 2009 at 10:35 AM

Look for some fall family tourists this year.

In the latest issue of Out (not available yet online), the leading national GLBT magazine offers some Charleston travel tips. The feature includes Pantheon and Dudley's (of course) along with food picks Hominy Grill, Peninsula Grill, and Vickery's (noting the gay scene on the patio). It also highlights Charleston Place (a favorite of David Sedaris) and the Mills House.

Look for it on the newsstand and we'll update here when its available online.

Our S.C. Pride wrap is on the main site.

We stopped by the booth for Charleston's Alliance for Full Acceptance and got word of an event AFFA will be participating in with Darkness to Light, the Charleston based nonprofit that prevents child abuse by educating adults about the signs to look out for.

The event will be at 10 o'clock on Oct. 10. We'll get you more information and details as we get closer.

A Gay Pride Message From Joe Riley

Posted by Greg Hambrick on Tue, Sep 8, 2009 at 3:13 PM

Our Gay Issue is out the door and on the rack tomorrow.

Here's the letter from Charleston Mayor Joe Riley to attendants of the 2009 S.C. Gay Pride Festival:


I would like to extend a warm welcome to everyone attending this year's South Carolina Pride Festival. This year's organizers have succeeded in putting together a series of fun and awareness-raising events celebrating South Carolina Gay and Lesbian families. The festival is not only a time for reflection on the social issues facing the Pride movement, but also a celebration of the successes it has seen in raising awareness and compassion for the civil rights of the gay and lesbian community. Take this opportunity to proudly focus on your own individual accomplishments and efforts for a more tolerant society.

It is my sincere hope that you will have an enjoyable visit and will want to return to our wonderful city time and time again!

Most sincerely yours,

Joseph P. Riley Jr.
Mayor, City of Charleston
